Not being the biggest fan of wrestling, i was a bit apprehensive when i first bought this title for my new 360. I used to play the original smackdown on ps1 years ago, and i just fancied trying it out.
When i started playing, i knew it was a good decision to buy it! The game is so much fun, you can spend hours playing it!
The story mode overall is good, and worth a look for a few hours, but it does get repetitive, and annoying when whatever choice you make, another wrestler screws you over.. but this isnt where the fun in the game lies.
The fun lies in the exhibition matches, whether youre playing alone or multiplayer. There are a large number of matches to choose from, the best being the Money in the Bank matches. These can go on for hours at times, but theyr so competitive, its real good fun! Royal Rumbles are also good, with a large number of wrestlers being allowed in the ring at the same time.
There are a large number of superstars available on the roster, and theres also the chance to unlock quite a few more, meaning theres hours of fun to be had with different wrestlers, trying out different moves.
There's also a good creation zone, which gives easy achievement points just by using them.
There are a couple of negatives however, the story mode is repetitive, and the franchise mode is just stupidly hard and makes no sense, but the gameplay itself makes up for this!
If you like wrestling, fighting games, sporting games or even if you just fancy playing a game just for fun, WWE is a great game! One i just cant put down :D
